Every medium — be it a book, a website, a projection — has its intrinsic qualities and limitations. But for me, it’s always about the concept and the storytelling. The rest is form, colour, light and proportion.


As an adolescent, Matthias’s professional aspirations ranged from set design to architecture and medicine. He eventually opted for studying graphic design in Vienna from 2000–2002 and honed his typographic skills at UK-based type foundry Dalton Maag. He then gathered work experience as a graphic designer at Designhouse Consultancy in London, from 2002–2004.

After two years of travelling and working in Latin America, Matthias explored his interest in language and cultures studying literary translation (English and Spanish) at University of Vienna, earning his MA in 2011.

Matthias founded the studio in 2006 and has since then worked on an ever wider range of projects, from branding and print design to photography and, most recently, set design and visuals for opera.
